Absolute rubbish, bike isn't worth £20
on 13 August 2013
Bought this bike thinking it was a 'good deal' for a 6 speed folding bike. Wrong. Clumsy, badly made, difficult to fold and unfold, scant instructions, parts break off under minimal pressure, chain malfunctions, gears malfunction, seat is uncomfortable, feels like a child's bike, not an adult's, too small and too short, cheap looking, embarrassing, ultimately. Also, not that light, and not that compact when folded, it's still an effort to fit into a hatchback. Practiced several times and it still takes me up to half an hour to get it ready to ride from folded, and you need a strong man to do the final fold of the front wheel - it will not budge easily!!!
Do not waste your money on this. Worst bike I've ever, ever, owned. My mum has a fold up bike of a different make (a better make), and it's far, far, better than this one, in every way. It's also lasted her years.
This bike is a complete and utter con. Also known as 'Venturax Stowaway' Bike, and has been offered in the papers as a 'deal.' It isn't.
Stay clear you do not need this headache
